  1. It is with great sadness that we feel to hear that our colleague and Mets compadre has left us for a better life. John was a great gentle man and worked hard.

    We loved him dearly, and are greatly saddened to loose him at an early time in his mission on this earth to teach us compassion and patience.

    John the last thing you need to do while in heaven is to help our Mets to win. Let’s go Mets John!

  2. John was an individual to be around we shared office space and we had a lot of good conversation.It was a sad day for me when I knew of his health issues.
    John and I were fans of the New York Giant and New York Mets. He was a lover of Jamaican food especially the jerk chicken and the curry goat. We had know each other for over thirty years. I know he is in a better place now no more sorrow or pain, rest in peace sleep well my beloved friend.
    Condolences to all family members and friends

  3. I never met John, but know his daughter, Kristi. That she has always spoken so highly and fondly of him makes me know that the world has lost a wonderful person. My sincerest condolences to his family in this time of sorrow. Rest in peace.
